Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1407) Refactor Searchable to not have RMI Remote dependency
Date Thu, 11 Jun 2009 12:43:08 GMT


Shai Erera commented on LUCENE-1407:

bq. Shai, I have looked at LUCENE-1630 but haven't seen any patch available

It's in the oven :)

bq. I feel removing Searchable in 2.9 is a heavy change and will most likely break back compat.

Back-compat is already broken in 2.9 due to the Collector work. So people who extend Searcher
will need to implement the new search(***, Collector) methods. As I understood it, Searcher
was really a replacement for Searchable, and I suspect it was left there not deprecated just
because of RMI.

We preferred to add new methods to Searcher as abstract, rather than to Searchable, b/c we
want to move away from interfaces. Therefore I don't think that delaying that work will do
any good - we'll have more methods to maintain on the interface as well.

But to be honest I don't know what's better. I can have Searcher extend the RMI class, but
that will leave RMI in core. Or I can have Searchable implement new methods, but that won't
take us in the ultimate direction we want - getting rid of interfaces.

> We should refactor Searchable slightly so that it doesn't extend the java.rmi.Remote
marker interface.  I believe the same could be achieved by just marking the RemoteSearchable
and refactoring the RMI implementation out of core and into a contrib.
> If we do this, we should deprecate/denote it for 2.9 and then move it for 3.0
